organization, if the key person gets taken out, does it really get worse? i worked in the pentagon, it would have made it better. [laughter] so we realized you've really got to go after the people who do logistics, communications, pass information, build car bombs, communicate. you've got to take those out. and so we came up with a strategy, and i know philadelphia will love this, but i used to tell people it's like rocky balboa and apollo creed. we're going to hit them in the midsection, and we're going to hit them a lot. so from august 2004 when we did 18 raids, two years later same force, same fight we were doing 300 raids a month. that's ten a nightment now, if you stop and you say, well, ten a night, that's a lot, that's impress e. that means every raid guy on the force is going on a raid at least one raid every night. every pilot's flying one or two raids every night. and these raids are not patrols. this is not a foot -- these are going in the door, somebody's getting shot. extraordinary. and to do that, though, you can't use previous systems. one, you've got to be able to bring in th

the pentagon was getting ready for these cuts. i think that they are absolutely apprehensive, the business community is, about the next round in the budget. what they want, though, is certainty. they don't expect that the government is going to pump money into the economy to stimulate it. what they do expect is that congress will put aside its dysfunctional ways and get a deal relatively quickly on this next round that we're going to see in march. >> david hawkings, great to you can at a to you this mornintalk. >>> in a "fox news sunday" exclusive, nra ceo wayne la pierre weighse weighs in and for astronaut mark kelley, they both talk about the gun control debate. chris wallace joins us live in a moment with a preview. >>> we have new details in the case of the american woman killed during a trip to turkey. authorities are now saying they know who and what killed her. what do we do when something that's hard to paint, really wants to be painted? we break out new behr ultra with stain-blocker from the home depot... ...the best selling paint and primer in one that now eliminates stains. so i
